walker is a great governor introducing great ideas. [applause] all across america, governors are doing the innovative, new solution things that barack obama is opposing in washington, d.c. and the contrast couldn't be more vivid. i came this morning because i need your help, i think the country needs your help, the republican party and the conservative movement need your help. we're in a 50-year struggle for the conservative movement in the republican peat. let me be clear. the republican establishment is just plain wrong about how to approach politics. republicans in solving problems is plain wrong. are e who have been here raising the right kind of questions. monday the republican national committee will produce a report on the initial changes. that report will be an important first step. i want to female size, it is a first step. -- emphasize it is a first step. the first republican president posed the challenge for all of us in december 1862. lincoln wrote the following to the congress "can we do better? the dogmas of the quiet past are in adequate to the stormy present. the occasi

washington is the president of j street, jeremy, great to have you on the program. >> it's great to be here. >> let's talk about things that may get done or see some progress. president obama said to israeli tv last week, we think it could take over a year or so for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. that would seem to be something worth discussing, the president is setting out a time frame in which iran may have nuclear capabilities. one would think that would go over with the israelis who have long been ringing the alarmt bells. what is your assessment? >> both countries' intelligence is actually pretty much in line. there's not a lot of disagreement around where the iranian program is at. i think the question that has come up is what's the best strategy, what's the best timeline for implementing that strategy for preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. i think it's a good opportunity for the president and the prime minister to make sure they touch base, are on the same page, sanctions and diplomacy are the president's chosen

to jordan and they also spent a great deal of time that iran may pose in the reasoning if it develops nuclear weapons. president obama arrived in amman to a red carpet welcome and immediately had a lengthy meeting with the jordanian leader. >> today i'm announcing that my administration will work with congress to provide jordan with an additional $200 million in budget support this year as it cares for syrian refugees and jordanian communities affected by this crisis. >> before heading to jordan, the president spent a final morning in israel touring some of jerusalem's powerful cultural landmarks. at the grave of itzhak rabin. president obama also visited the holocaust memorial joining president peres and prime minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry as well. and in nearby bethlehem, president obama toured the church of the nativity. the biblical birth place of jesus. he did that with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. the president then held one more scheduled meeting with benjamin netanyahu before taking that 35-minute flight to jordan. martin fletcher has
of the women's movement all that great activism that it produced and all of that we are seeing that directly play out today whether it's the election of barack obama or the continued advancement of women in congress so all that is a direct result of their activism. that being said there is a lot of work left undone and i think that we now spend three fourths of our entitlement money on people who are over the age of 30 and it used to be we spent three for some people under the age of 30 in terms of the amount of money and investment. it's not in terms of generational warfare but i think we need to have a conversation about how we are dividing our priorities. this is not a generation that expects to get those entitlements by the way. this is not a generation that has and he believes the government going to give them out money. >> host: the activism you talked about from the baby boomer generation. that's an activism that has trickled down to millennials or do you see them as more politically apathetic? >> guest: i think the activism of that generation was very much and still in the millennial
, is of great concern to israel when it's so close to their territory. >> shepard: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. put yourself in their shoes. those words from president obama to the israelis, talking about the treatment of palestinians who live in the west bank. on day two of the president's first trip to israel as president. he said that nation needs to make peas with the palestinians in order to ensure israel's survival and called for a two-state solution, one that gives the palestinians a land of their own. the president's comments come after he met with the palestinian leader, abass. he said israel has true partners in the leaders of the palestinian authority, but in a graphic reminder, the palestinian soldiered fired rockets on a city just hours before the president's visit to the west bank. >> children the same age is a my own daughters, who went to bed at night >> sat down with the israeli pratt and the talked of possible war with iran. >> that's right. perez was saying -- i was in the same garden with him today at his official residence, that the walked with president obama yesterd

of david callahan because he is a smart guy, works for -- that's great. but he is really saying that i'm entitled to your damn money. just because i have. >> bill: the federal government under president obama believes they are entitled. >> they believe it they are doing it. >> bill: because that's your fair share. that fair share thing is what this is all under. >> that fair share right now amount 25%. 25% of the taxpayers paying 95% of the taxes in this country. that is so screwed up. >> bill: other 75% pay taxes on everything else. >> sure, property taxes, sales taxes. >> bill: it's not like they are getting a free ride. that's where romney made his mistake. even people who make 40, 35,000. every time they turn around, sales tax, tolls, register your car, bang, bang, bang. >> i had asked and asked and asked much this administration, this white house, this president, the democrats in congress, what then is the number? what is the number you want? they won't answer. >> bill: they want everything. restaurants in the u.s.a. people dining out less. is this a pure don't have any money play

. but cruz says things are just going great. he told the dallas morning news, "if you look at the vote on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically winning it by default. you know, a lot of them almost wonder what it is that these democrats are even
of romney and obama and so on, it has, it has, it had the fox, fox news doesn't reach most of those people. look, fox gets great ratings. hates a loyal audience, but you know, look at the shows. bill o'reilly shows the most popular one on cable news. it gets 2 or 3 million people a night. that is not the electorate. we have a big country. and the conservative media only reaches a tiny chunk of it. >> i am looking at column you wrote in 2004. i am going to read the first couple of lines to see if you can tell the rest of the story. >> a few years ago michael moore who is now promoting a anti-president bush movie entitled fahrenheit 9/1, announced he had gotten the goods on me. indeed hung me out to dry on my own words. it was in his first best selling book, stupid white men. moore wrote he had once been forced to listen to my comments on a tv chat group. moore said and round up by bell lowing: these kids don't even know what the iliad and the odd i have. what did the rest of the column say? do you remember? >> i don't. >> you are accused him of lying? >> yeah. >> he said he called you. >>
, including our closest allies, france and great britain, pressuring the u.s. to do more to help and arm the syrian rebels. >> we do not stand, president obama has made it clear, that the united states does not stand in the way of other countries that made a decision to provide arms, whether it's france or britain or others. he believes that we need to change president assad's calculation. >> there has been disagreement in the past in, within the cabinet. we now know that hillary clinton and the c.i.a. director and others wanted some, and the defense team as well, leon panetta, wanted to arm the rebels. the president is still dead set against that. we don't know where secretary kerry comes down. is this an issue where the president is going to have to move under pressure from allies? >> i think this is an issue that the people at the white house wrestle with every single day. the human cost of assad's actions are horrific. and we struggle with the human toll and hearing these stories from the region, about innocent people that are suffering. so what the president has done is rejected thi
. >> you're in "the situation room." >>> it is one of the great debates in washington right now, can president obama and republicans reach a long-term agreement on reducing the deficit? >> the answer, different depending on which republican you ask. house speaker john boehner doesn't sound very hopeful. he's standing firm against the idea of increasing tax rates, increasing tax revenue. >> the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be to balance the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we're going to get very far. and this is the whole issue. we have a spending problem here in washington, and it's time to solve the problem. >> we're hearing different things coming from various republicans, including senator bob corker. he's a republican of tennessee. he says he's optimistic about the possibility of what's called a grand bargain, and he's open to the idea of raising tax revenues to cut the deal under certain circumstances. senator corker's joining us n
heard from an example of why i'm optimistic about the future. scott walker is a great governor introducing great ideas -- [applause] all across america governors are doing the innovative, new, solution-oriented things which barack obama so -- is opposing in washington, d.c., and the contrasts couldn't be more vivid. but i came this morning because i need your help, i think the country needs your help, the republican party and the conservative movement need your help. we're in a 50-year struggle for the conservative movement in the republican party. let me be clear, the republican establishment is just plain wrong about how to approach its politics. [applause] the republican consulting class is just plain wrong about how to approach the politics. people who have been here like dave bossy, craig shirley, the work that alex is doing on concept of the new republic, all of these are beginning to raise the right kind of questions. monday the republican national committee will produce a report on the initial changes, and i commend chairman reince priebus for starting that process. tha
in the region. obama botched it. he not successful. he gave it and delegated it to the vice president. a failure. as a result, iraq is out of our hands. we have no influence. great sacrifice. i think that is sort of the most ironic tragedy of them all. >> bret: today there was an exchange between james rose an jay carney at the white house in which carney said that george w. bush was to be credited for taking out saddam hussein along with the u.s. military who were there obviously. is there an issue in looking back and seeing the good in iraq talking about it? >> the good is unmistakable. saddam regime, dynasty with this was the cruelest on the planet. sadistic government. it was the most aggressive. starting wars on all fronts. it's gone. iraq now is not a left. not exactly democratic. but it's not the hell that saddam iraq was. that is undeniable. the problem for americans the sacrifice was huge. and tragic. and strategic advantage which we hoped to gain to have ally in iraq was squandered at the end of the surge. >> bret: i spent 12 trips to iraq over time covering the pentagon and white hous
will they last? >> for as long as it takes. we'll be here until we get some agreement. >> great work by steve. it's not easy. you can hear more from that interview in we speak with steve coming up in the program. in the meantime, president obama is expected to arrive in israel later today to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a broad range of security issues. it's the first time he's visited the country as president and only the second time he's been to the middle east since taking office. we are joined now from jerusalem. what's the mood there ahead of this visit? >> hi there, kelly. both israelis and palestinians aren't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, s

? a message to president obama? or could it have been a message to mahmoud abbas, who, yes, is the president of the palestinian authority and the leader of the fatah political movement, but he has great differences and a great internal rivalry within the palestinian territories with hamas. that is one of the big questions and one of the big obstacles to getting a peace process going again. president obama did not spend too much time on this in his first term, but he is determined to focus on it in the second term, and listen to the optimistic tone here, despite the big differences. >> we can not give up on the search for peace, no matter how hard it is. as i said with prime minister netanyahu yesterday, we will continue to look for steps that both israelis and palestinians can take to build the trust and the confidence upon which lasting peace will depend. >> reporter: so the president saying, let's get back to the table, but, carol, the question is, will either party, will the palestinians come back, will the israelis come back if the palestinians first don't -- will the palestinians come b

for that. mr. ambassador, great to see you. thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you, uma. >> let me begin by saying that many israelis have been very skeptical about president obama's security interests in israel and up to now, a frosty relationship with benjamin netanyau. why should mr. netanyahu trust president obama now? >> you're right, uma, there was a lot of skepticism and even suspicious about president obama's relationship with israel and with the israeli prime minister. we have had four very tense years. but i know in america, you say that there is no second chance to make a first impression. well, the president got that second chance and i think he took it i think his visit to israel, as far as the feeling and the respect and the emotion of the israeli people was a great success. it was a very impressive charm offensive. he reached out to the people. he touched every nerve and every fiber of israeli society with his words. and i must say that when air force one took off, it carried with it a totally different president, as far as at least the emotions, the expectations
this world isn't big enough for the both of them. but we assure you - it is. bites. little greatness. >> john: welcome back to "viewpoint." we asked you earlier online what was your favorite cpac movement. we're overwhelmed with replies and palin reading a joke about obama's teleprompter teleprompter on a teleprompter. if you have a comment for the show send it to us. we have "trump the race card." are you sick and tired of being called you're racist and you know you're not one. kay carl smith advices those who are called racist all the time but deflect racists all the time by calling themselves frederick douglas republicans. it was going fine until the q and a section then scott terry a member of the white students union at to towson university began making a case for segregation when smith tried to answer things went south you pun intended. >> when douglas escaped from slavery i think ten years after he escaped from slavery he writes a letter to his former slave master and said i forgive you. for all the things you did to me forgive him for giving food and shelter and all of those
president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from e private conversations. i think obama bringstwo very tough, unpalatable messages to e israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force against iran's nuclear weapons program. and number two, you need to make more concessions to the palestinians to try and reach the two-state solution. so i think the private talks are going to be very, very tough. meliss wow! so, given that, i mean let's move over to syria for a second. one of israel's top officials saying, it is quote, apparently clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obam administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed the opposition used chemical weapons. the opposition claimed the assad regime used them. o
san president obama about to sign a funding bill to keep the government running, but it keeps in place budget cuts to programs near and dear to his heart. some say it's great news to the private sector and recovery, with me, dan, from the "wall street journal," and rick unger from "forbes," welcome to you both. i tried to rile you up in the commercials. first you, dan. when you look at all of this, you have to ask yourself, did theepresident misread the g.o.p.? did he misread we'd be so scared that we would allow him to go through with his agenda, and when we made the bet the sun would rise the following morning, and it did, is he now in a tough predecision? >> yeah, he predicted an apocalypse with the sequester, and nothing bad happened, and the republicans called his bluff, and now i think he is in a tough position, sandra, because spending is going down. the sequester is taking effect. it was obama's intention to get federal spending to rise permanently from a historic degree of 21% of gdp. he wants 23% or 24%. it's going in the wrong direction now. sandra: saying more federal spend
the economy was contracted. greece is having our great depression of the late 1920s. >> wow. >>> moving on to washington now. president obama's renewed push for a grand bargain may be showing some early signs of paying off, at least with one top republican. senator bob corker of tennessee says he could envision raising tax revenue if democrats embrace big changes to medicare and social security. he is at odds with other members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about ra
" begins right now. >>> our team this morning is katherine rossman and chris, great to see you here. >> let's start with president obama at the start of a historic middle east visit. there's a new sense of urgency because there are mounting concerns that the syrian government may be using chemical weapons on its own people. listen to congressman mike rogers. this is in the situation roof last night with wolf blitzer. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> let's bring in our john king right now, chief national correspondent traveling with the president. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. syria issue, the iran issue, big concerns for the president. odd for a u.s. president to be in israel while on the issue list will be down a bit in part because of what's happening in syria. syria neighbors israel and much of the intelligence the u.s. has been getting comes from the israeli government. it's the president's first overseas trip in the s
and george, some well-earned time off. great to have amy robach and paula faris here and we have some video to show you. it's air force one just landing in israel after an overnight flight from washington, d.c., president obama now making his first official visit to the country as president, his second, in fact, to the middle east and saying as he arrived and i do quote "it's good to get away from congress." >> we don't really need to say anything more than that. >> no, we don't.
all the ethical issues. and that's why i think it's a great area for debate. >> lisa, thank you for that. >>> president obama's first trip to israel as commander in chief under way. cnn's erin burnett is going "out front" on the story. >> we're going to be talking to the man of the moment as the "jerusalem post" dubbed bennett, when it all came down to it in the israeli government, he is one of the top guys. he'll be our special guest this evening and we're going to talk about a man that mayor bloomberg in new york called ridiculous. he called him ridiculous because this man has dared to defy him on large sugary drinks. that man is howard shultz, the ceo of starbucks. >> thank you. up next, wolf, it's his turn to respond to the ridiculous and a prom date like no other how one hopeful young man got this top model's attention.

that. i'll tell you a couple of reasons why. senator stabenow had a chart about how great the economy or the fiscal situation of the country looked about the tile president bush took office. well, the last month of president obama's -- president clinton's term in office was meggive growth -- was negative growth. and i think that was the fishes month of negative -- and i think that was the first month of meggivmonth ofnegative growth it years. president obama didn't inherit a recession. former president bush did have a recession in his second year or so of his term and he took action and whatever, the economy bounced back and by the time president clinton took office, the economy was growing, and it's continued to fr grow throuh the decade. we don't know all those forces. we play politics about it, but nobody really knows precisely what moves an economy, whether it was something ten years ago or something ten months ago because of the difficulty. we just make guesses and we just do our best judgment. so here we go. in early 2000, i'm on the budget committee, and mr. greenspan testifies
. >> i like it. you get your chance, take it. >> okay. we will start there actually. president obama touched down in the west bank city of ramallah this morning and great by president abbas of the palestinian authority kicking off the second leg of his four-day visit to the middle east. today, the israel army confirmed four rockets were fired from the gaza strip landing in southern israel and causing some damage. the rocket strike, which has not been claimed by any palestinian militant group, is the second violation of the cease-fire that ended the clash between the hamas and israel this past november. yesterday, the president's meeting with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu focused on another threat to israel in the region. it runs nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world, and potentially an threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> richard, help somebody out at home who is watching this. the president of the unit
it was vital that president obama went to israel at this critical moment. it was a great speech and reaffirmation of a fundamental relationship in particular that he recognized that israel is a jewish home land and a right to exist and self-defense in face of both a iranian nuclear weapons program. it is a very unstable situation in syria and in the region. this was a vital important moment for president obama, both to reassure the israeli people that we are their most vital ally, that we have an unshakeable relationship but also to urge forward a peace process that could help stabilize the region. >> dr. brzezinski, off of what senator coons just said, we have this decades old issue of trying to come up with a peace settlement within israel. yet, right now, the area, the fuses around israel so volatile and fast burning. syria, jordan, iran, egypt. talk about the degree of difficulty at this moment of trying to put a peace package together within israel. >> you know, the difficulty is that when there is no unrest and danger on the outside, there is no sense of urgency that peace
